FAKE Alert: Amul is not shutting its chilling stations amid COVID-19


Amid the Coronavirus outbreak in India, a notice attributed to major dairy brand ‘Amul’ is making rounds on WhatsApp and social media claiming that all chilling stations of the company shall remain closed for an indefinite time from March 21, 2020.

The notice read: “विषय : कोरोना वायरस की बजह से चिलिंग सेंटर बंद करने के सम्बन्ध”

A reader sent the same query on NewsMobile’s official fact-checking helpline (+91 8826800707).

NewsMobile fact-checked the above circular and found it to be false.

First, we scanned Amul’s website and social media handles, but we couldn’t find such notification by the dairy brand.

On investigating further, we came across a tweet by the Managing Director of Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) which manages Amul, RS Sodhi, clarifying that the notice in circulation is false.

“It seems somebody spreading this news which is fake and none of our milk chilling centre or procurement activities are going to close down , Rather we are procuring more,” RS Sodhi tweeted.

Hence, the above information clarifies that Amul is NOT shutting its chilling stations.
